New Boutiques To Visit Around Town

This summer is the perfect time to check out these newly opened local boutiques and explore their uniquely curated offerings. Not intentional, but this list is comprised of all women-owned businesses who are each adding personalized touches, making shopping a special experience.

Room Eight Studio

Room Eight Studio

Room Eight Studio has been an e-commerce site for more than two years, garnering a loyal following of fashion-forward thinking customers. Founder Ashley Catronio is now bringing her vision to Delray Beach with her first environmentally-conscious boutique, offering a curated assortment of women’s clothing, jewelry, home accessories, skin care products, men’s apparel and more. If you’re looking for denim, then look no further with the boutique’s extensive denim selection which includes brands Citizens of HumanityMoussy Vintage, and Amo among others.

Shopping at Room Eight is like walking into the pages of a fashion magazine. “I think of it as a tailored ecosystem, leaving space for the editorial finds that elevate our way of thinking. Beyond the unrealistic perfection and unattainable prices, a glimmer of artistry, vision and trailblazing compositions evolve between the lines,” shares Catronio on what inspires her. 

Also noteworthy, the boutique is currently running its biggest sale of the year through July 4.

Vêtu

Vêtu

Vêtu is a family-owned business with three generations working together to “bring back the fashion experience of the golden ages when tailors were on-site,” says co-Founder Diana Alava. That’s exactly the added benefit that customers get from shopping at Vêtu. The Royal Palm Place boutique offers full alterations and tailoring services on premise, so shop an assortment of apparel and accessories with every generation in mind and rest assured that you will have a tailored quality wardrobe at fair prices. And, if you’re wondering what’s the meaning of “Vêtu”—It is “dressed” in French and “you go” in Spanish, so “Dressed you go!” 

Special note, they have a sale rack going on all summer, but their big 40% summer sale on all clothes (excluding swim and accessories) will run the weekend of July 6 and July 7.
